For patients in the Hematology-Adolescent Medicine Clinic at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the menstrual care products they take home after each visit are a source of comfort and relief—mentally, physically and financially. Every month in the United States, approximately 1 in 5 menstruating individuals leave school early or miss school entirely because they do not have access to menstrual care products.

Converting a pathogenic hemoglobin gene to a benign variant enables healthy blood cell production in an animal model of sickle cell disease
Following the Food and Drug Administration’s approval, UC San Diego Health is the first designated medical center in San Diego certified to offer a new immunotherapy treatment of multiple myeloma outside of a clinical trial. The new immunotherapy is a…
Pitt’s Tamer Ibrahim uses recently optimized 7-Tesla MRI imaging technology to study SCD’s effect on the brain
Tested on human blood in the lab, the selective nanocapsules could reduce the side effects of a major blood clot dissolving drug, which include bleeding on the brain. If confirmed with animal tests, the nanocapsules could also make the drug…
Researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have developed a proof-of-concept treatment for blood disorders like sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia that could raise hemoglobin levels by activating production of both fetal and adult hemoglobin. Using a viral vector engineered to reactivate fetal hemoglobin production, suppress mutant hemoglobin, and supply functional adult hemoglobin, the researchers developed an approach that could produce more hemoglobin through a single vector. The results were published in Haematologica.
